AdC imposes fine of €3.6 M to APAP for restraining competition in advertising services* The AdC (Autoridade da Concorrência) imposed a fine of 3,6 million euros on the Portuguese advertising agencies association - APAP (Associação Portuguesa de Agências de Publicidade, Comunicação e Marketing)- for restraining its associates from freely participating in procurement tenders for advertising services. The Statement of Objections (accusation), issued in July 2019, also included the Portuguese advertisers association - APAN (Associação Portuguesa de Anunciantes).

Proceedings against APAN were therefore closed.
